Maradona sported a pair of eponymous boots upon his feet as he went about his business on that fateful day in Mexico City and, three decades on, Puma have revived the 'KingMaradona Super' for a special limited edition run in homage.

Despite having earned 70 caps and scored 31 goals for Germany, Mueller is still only 26 and is a shoe-in for club or country whether as a winger, attacking midfielder or striker.
